Why Long Term Care is Unique

Because of the special needs of the elderly patient, it is hard to imagine a hospice that could function without the services of a compounding pharmacist. Long Term Care patients often require the advanced technology that compounding has to offer.

When expertly applied, this technology can significantly reduce many symptoms, including chronic pain, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, and terminal agitation. The result is a comfortable and more dignified lifestyle. Traditional dosage forms are often not practical considering the patient's physical condition. They may also be difficult for the family member to administer.

In these cases, the compounding pharmacist can formulate alternate dosage forms, such as transdermal gels, concentrated liquids, or suppositories. Innovative Pharmaceuticals’ sterile compounding room also enables us to provide intravenous, injectable, ophthalmic, and inhalation preparations. Our consulting pharmacists are always happy to provide solutions for particularly challenging situations.
